DOCUMENT DESCRIPTION

The concepts of Centralization and Decentralization refer to where decisions are made in the chain of command. All organization have to make strategic and operational decisions. But, where and by whom should these decisions be made? How should the organization structure be adapted?

Centralization and Decentralization are two opposing ways to transfer decision-making power and to change the organizational structure of organizations accordingly. Centralization of authority means the power of planning and decision-making are exclusively in the hands of top management. On the other hand, for the case of Decentralization, the powers for the same has been disseminated by the top management to the middle or low-level management. Each structure offers its own set of advantages and disadvantages.

It is important to note that Decentralization is not the same as delegation. In fact, Decentralization is an extension of delegation. Decentralization pattern is wider is scope and the authorities are diffused to the lowest most level of management. Delegation of authority is a complete process and takes place from one person to another.

    "I have used Flevy services for a number of years and have never, ever been disappointed. As a matter of fact, David and his team continue, time after time, to impress me with their willingness to assist and in the real sense of the word. I have concluded in fact that it is not at all just a repository of documents/resources but, in the way that David and his team manage the firm, it is like dealing with consultants always ready to assist, advise and direct you to what you really need, and they always get it right.

    I am an international hospitality accomplished senior executive who has worked and lived during the past 35 years in 23 countries in 5 continents and I can humbly say that I know what customer service is, trust me.

    Aside from the great and professional service that Flevy's team provide, their wide variety of material is of utmost great quality, professionally put together and most current.

    Well done Flevy, keep up the great work and I look forward to continue working with you in the future and to recommend you to a variety of colleagues around the world."
